Handball is one of the most exciting, friendliest and fastest growing sports in the UK, and since the London 2012 Olympics, interest in the game has soared!

Imagine a mix between basketball and football, and along with hints of rugby, you’re basically there. The sport allows you to develop a combination of accuracy, agility, speed and strength. Games last sixty minutes, are divided into two halves and teams are allowed unlimited substitutions. All of this makes handball the second fastest indoor sport after ice hockey!

Whether you are a complete beginner, a handball veteran or are just looking to get fit, we want to have you involved in our society! Here is a selection of the activities that we can offer you:

  • Weekly training sessions at the UCL Academy and additional first team training at Somers Town Community Sports Centre

  • Weekly social events

  • Regular matches competing against other London university teams in the university handball league

  • Travel abroad and international handball tournaments

  • Playing in the annual EHA university championships

All of this and we are one of the cheapest sports societies, so come along, meet us and give it a go!

If you have any questions feel free to get in contact, otherwise see you soon!
